I haven't really swam or cycled this year but when I heard that the Westlake Triathlon coming up I had to sign up. This triathlon is put on by the Westlake Recreation Department to promote health in the area. It's beginnners friendly with it being only a 120 meter swim, 4 mile bike, 1.5 mile run, and its FREE.
I had brought my Garmin 910xt but unfortunately never experimented with the functions in multisport mode so my times a little off.
Swim: Just a little 120 meter swim shouldn't be so bad right? WRONG. At first I go out and I'm thinking to myself that I'm such an awesome swimmer then I get about 50 meters into the swim I'm spent. Doggy paddle/breast stroke was my savior in the pool and also the shallow end. You could actually walk on that end. I get out of the pool and have a pretty nice transition into my bike.
Bike: Haven't been on my road bike in probably 2 years but as the saying goes.... The route had a few turns in it and a nice roundabout at the midway point which made for a nice ride. I get back and transition into the run.
Run: 1.5 mile run and it's getting hot now. I push myself to keep running and then push myself more when I see the finish line so I can finish strong.
My total time was around 43 minutes which is pretty good considering I was also recording the whole triathlon with my GoPro Camera.
